Stacking the Shelves #12

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's @ Tynga's Reviews. It's a chance to showcase all the books we bought, won, and received for review-- whether they're ebooks or physical books.
BEST WEEK EVER: I almost peed my pants when I got the acceptance email for  The Wolves of Midwinter *squeals* SO EXCITED. I can honestly say, this moment is the highlight of my 8-month blogging career.
Would I have thought, 8 months ago, that blogging would lead me to get an ARC of an Anne Rice book?! My idol favorite author?!?! I woulda been like, nah..not me. So yeah, *fangirl moment* So frickin' awesome!

So yeah, to celebrate I bought some kick ass books. The used bookstore near me was having a 50% off sale! So I got Blue Bloods, The Winter's Tale, and Artemis Fowl 2 for 5$!! :o I do need to slow down on buying new books though, I want a chance to preen at the covers and enjoy reading them..I'm getting a bit overwhelmed instead. o_O

But I'm super thrilled about all these new YA releases: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, The Beautiful and the Cursed. AND I'm finally gonna see what all the hype is about: Shadow & Bone, Poison Princess. All in all, it definitely was my best week ever in book blogging. :$

  1. I have a discovery of witches for a while now and I still need to read it, but it's... big. Well in French it's really big. Happy reading!

    here is mine

    1. You're right, it IS super big! o_O

    2. yes... lol just need the motivation.

      My interviews are in English are most of my authors for my event are American. It's just I've translated them in French as well. I'm just doing a bilingual blog so I can make discover some awesome authors to French people too.

      I'm also a new follower on bloglovin! thank you

    3. That's cool! ^_^ thanks for following back! <3

  2. I saw the Anne Rice book on NG and was thinking of you! Woohoo, so excited you got it! Now that is why we blog to get pre releases that we would sell our soul for :O

    1. Exactly! >.< I was jumping up and down!

  3. You got a great assortment of books. I loved Shadow and Bone and really liked Poison Princess. Come see what I got this week at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

  4. Happy Dance for your Rice book, that is awesome and such a good feeling when you get a book you have been coveting! Enjoy all of your new books and I adored Discovery of Witches and hope you do too!

  5. You've got some really awesome books listed there! I haven't read any of them, but some look so pretty! Enjoy your reading!

  6. Congrats on getting approved for Anne Rice's book! I love her writing so I might have to hop on NG and see if I get lucky. You bought some awesome looking books this week. I really enjoyed Shadow and Bone and the Artemis Fowl series.

  7. I was thinking about getting Anne Rice's new book, but I was REALLY disappointed with the first one in the series and I don't think I could handle two disappointments in a row from her. Besides, I really don't like books on werewolves. No idea why.

  8. Beautiful and Cursed looks good, hope you enjoy

  9. I loved Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea! I just got The Beautiful and the Cursed also!

  10. Thanks for stopping by! I really want to read the PJ series, hopefully one day I can start it. I've never read anything by Anne Rice but I really want too :)

  11. Yay for a great blogging week! I have heard such good things about Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea from bloggers I trust so I hope you have a fabulous time reading it. And congrats on getting early access to an Anne Rice book since she's your favorite :)

  12. Wow! Great haul. Anne Rice, the borrowers, Shadow and Bones... So many good books that I have either read or want to read. Enjoy and Happy Reading!
